Dalmore Farm Guest House
Ranked #1 of 13 Bergville B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 7, 2012

Stopped over at this very pleasant guest farm in the Bergville area in South Africa.The farm is a working farm with great accommodation and food at a very competitive price.We would thoroughly recommend it for one night or even longer stays.

To nit pick the only slightly negative comment in the room I used was the duvet was a size too small for the bed and the shower nozzle was about three meters above the shower stall floor, meaning that the water went everywhere except where it should have.

Room Tip: The rooms are all quite different and include some self-catering options as well

A wonderful, somewhat rustic, guest house on a peaceful working farm and Pippa and Andrew were the perfect hosts.
The dinner and breakfast met all expectations and were delicious.
Really a great find compared to numerous B&B's we stay in each year.

My wife and I spent 1 night at this great home.Pippa and Andrew are 2 wonderful people who went out of their way to help us after we had an small accident near the dam.(BTW our car was a write off!!!!!)The room was squeaky clean and the service 5 star.We enjoyed the calm nature of the farm and loved watching the many sheep who where just outside our window,The evening atmosphere is something to cherish as we sat around the fire and chatted to many new friends.We will definately go back again if we have an opportunity.The large bathroom was clean with nice clean towels I felt that I was in my own home.So comfortable and alive Thank you so much for everything GOD BLESS !!

Thanks to Pippa for the wonderful place to stay. This place is perfect for a quiet night when you are almost at the end of your trip. And a great place so close to the Drakensberg Mountains - the central and northern areas.

We couldn't wait to go back to Dalmore after a lovely 3 days there in late Dec '11. It didn't disappoint--this time we stayed in a beautiful stone self-catering cottage with lovely living area/kitchen (double volume) and spacious bathroom. There is a huge loft area upstairs for the bedroom which easily accommodated an extra bed for our son of 7.
The bed and linen were wonderful as was the space and beautiful outlook.
Best of all at Dalmore is the warm personal attention that is so freely and generously given by owners Pippa & Andrew Blackburn. It truly is home from home!

This was our nicest stay during a two week tour of KwaZulu-Natal. Pippa and her husband Andrew made us very welcome on this immaculate farm and our rustic room was a delight. So was dinner, beautifully cooked and shared with Pippa and her family and friends. It was a lovely evening and we were sorry we had not booked to stay longer. They do not ask for a deposit, which is unusual in South Africa, and the whole experience of living with a family on a farm was truly memorable.

Room Tip: Talk to Pippa on the phone and ask for Room 3.

My cousin and brother both recommended Dalmore to us and it was a real treat. Pippa Blackburn, the owner, took our booking by phone, didn't ask for a deposit and both she and her husband Andrew saw to our every need. We stayed for 2 nights and felt as if we could have stayed for a lot longer. There is a main "farmhouse" where breakfast and dinner is served with a wrap around verandah. The other rooms are situated in a stone annexe (b&b rooms) and in separate cottages, some of which are self catering. Our room was spacious, well-planned and very comfortable and the king size bed was glorious with stunning white linen. The bath and basins were in the room with the loo being tucked away off the adjoining room, where our son slept. An added bonus is the delightful outside shower. The rooms have kettles and tea/coffee facilities. The perfectly manicured lawns and gardens are a delight for children to run around in and they have a great trampoline, climbing trees and a fabulous new pool area which is tucked away on a lower level for total privacy. The breakfasts were excellent and Pippa gave us a wonderful 3 course dinner. Andrew was very helpful with directions to Spioenkop Game Reserve next door and they both couldn't have been more hospitable. The rates were very reasonable and the drinks/dinner were amazing value for money. We can't wait to visit Dalmore again!

Room Tip: Let Pippa know if you want self-catering or bed and breakfast. We stayed in Room 2, which was lovely...
